Frequently Asked Questions

Our responses should be regarded as informed opinion rather than definitive facts.

Q1 - My current experience is not in the cruise or yacht industry, in which Viking specialise, and I realise it is difficult to break in, despite my capabilities. Should I still send my cv?

Please still forward your CV as we are very open to candidates from different sectors of the maritime industry. There is always a demand for experienced, qualified Officers and your skills can be transferable to these industries if you have the right attitude.

Q2 - How do salaries compare shoreside to seagoing?

They vary ashore, much as they do at sea. This does really depends on experience, qualifications and what type of role you are going into. One thing to remember is that with a shore side job, you will be taxed on your wages.
